Addressing Topical Issues With Children
In the midst of two shocking terror attacks, the world can seem like a bewildering and scary place for children as their online world is inundated with breaking news stories.
Although social media has proven very helpful in the wake of the attacks, it may also present a chance for children to see upsetting things, so internetmatters.org offers tips on starting conversations with children about what they may come across online.
We also offer advice on how to introduce safety controls to stop them from being exposed to age-inappropriate content. Parents can also visit our advice on preventing your child from accessing extreme material and advice on radicalisation here.
